Don’t you just love how predictable liberals are? Never hesitate to toss a little vitriol around, even when it’s against a newly-deceased cultural icon.Just minutes after it was announced that beloved “Batman” star Adam West had passed away, haters pounced.
His crime? West once tweeted a tongue-in-cheek thank you to Donald Trump.According to BizPac Review, In 2015, the original caped crusader, who also played the role of the mayor of the fictional town of Quahog Rhode Island in the “Family Guy” series, sent a tongue-in-cheek tweet to the future president.
After future President Trump told a young boy on the campaign trail that he was Batman, West “thanked” him for removing the “crimefighting weight” from his shoulder.

Of course, the memory of that tweet was too great for this lefty, who immediately had to pounce.
Adam West's Batman was a lot like Trump. Those without fully developed brains took him seriously, while most adults realized it was a joke. https://t.co/tYMczuesNY

At least SOME people had common decency…
I don't care for Trump but sad you have to take this sad story and make it political. Rest in piece Batman.

Our own Allen West posted yesterday,
As a young kid I grew up with him, and even to this day there are folks that via Freudian slip refer to me by his name. Today I lost one of my childhood favorites, Adam West, the original Batman. I remember when my dad took me to see the actual Batmobile, and it was a highlight. Everyone of my generation could hum along the Batman theme. Today, because of Adam West, DC Comics has resurrected the Dark Knight and the character is still my favorite. Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, Christian Bale, and Ben Affleck have all donned the mask. But for me, Batman will always be Adam West…God rest your soul sir, farewell, and this kid will miss ya.
This kid too…
